Butterfly CASE study

I found a new challenge blog called CASE study. CASE stands for Copy and Steal Everything. So I guess the idea is to come as close to the original as possible (correct me if I'm wrong). I got my inspiration from the original card, but I made it different to participate in some other challenges. I took this sketch from Cards & Things, and the colors are from Dynamic Duos, also a new challenge to me. I love how this card turned out.
This is the original: I took inspiration from the woodgrain background (my FAVORITE part of this card!), the butterflies, lace, tag, and hemp.
This is the sketch:
And this is the color challenge:
I do not have an embosser, like a cuttlebug, so I just used my stylus and my paper trimmer. I love how this turned out! It has the effect of boards on the woodgrain. The colors I used were Black, White Daisy, and Sunny Yellow.

Materials used:
Paper: Black, White Daisy, and Sunny Yellow cardstock
Stamps: Universal Backgrounds, Quick Cards - Butterfly, Sweet Moments
Ink: White Daisy, Black, and Sunny Yellow
Embellishments: White Daisy Bigger Brads, Hemp, Lace (not CTMH)
